Knox Gateway proxying with DataPlane
With Knox setup and configured in your cluster, it is optional (but recommended) that you also configure Knox to be a proxy gateway for communication between your DP Instance and your cluster. You must configure Knox Gateway for proxying on the clusters you plan to use with DataPlane prior to starting the DataPlane installation process. During DataPlane installation, you will configure Knox Gateway for DataPlane.
Configuring Knox Gateway is required if your cluster is configured with Kerberos or with wire encryption. This simplifies certificate management for DataPlane, as the only security certificate that needs to be managed is for Knox.
Refer to the following documentation on how to configure your cluster for Knox Gateway:
